This is me. I've started going to the gym over lunch on Fridays so I don't have to go after work, and it takes me 1.5-2 hours. But the rest of the week I eat lunch at my desk, so I figure they're still getting the good end of the deal. » 1/30/15 3:38pm Friday 3:38pm

It's a GREAT idea to ask one of the trainers to help you. The exercise should put some strain on your shoulders and upper back, as well as your core and your quads and your glutes. As my PT put it: "If you don't feel like every muscle in your body is firing, you're not doing it right." But it's extremely hard to… » 1/29/15 12:19pm Thursday 12:19pm

Hooray for whey protein! I have morning scoop in a cup of milk around 10:30, and I find those 200 calories go a loooooong way towards making sure I don't overeat at lunch (the meal at which I'm most likely to overeat). Even though I'm not particularly hungry around 10:30, I found a whey protein that doesn't taste like… » 1/29/15 7:27am Thursday 7:27am

Boiler Room is very good...probably one of the better places in Omaha. There's also Grey Plume, (Lateef also mentioned it) which everyone raves about. I haven't been personally, but everyone I know who's been there says it's great. If you're focused on fish, one of my dining friends who I trust deeply says Plank… » 1/28/15 2:08pm Wednesday 2:08pm

I always love hearing people's different versions of their own "cleanse" (unless they actually think it's a cleanse, then not so much). I love sweating as a "cleanse"...I know sweating technically rids us of only a teeny tiny percentage of anything bad, but I feel so much better after a good sweat. Cabbage soup is a… » 1/28/15 11:23am Wednesday 11:23am

I think that's one of the reasons Parks and Rec is so superior to 30 Rock, in my opinion. Pretty much all the characters on 30 Rock exist and caricatures and nothing more. Liz may be the only "sane" one, but 30 Rock is mostly just about being funny with exaggerated characters (which is fine...30 Rock is funny as… » 1/28/15 10:15am Wednesday 10:15am

This is why when someone mentions being on a diet, I just smile, nod, and try to change the subject as quickly as possible. There is no good way to do it. What and how people are eating is their own business anyway, and it's highly unlikely my opinion on it is going to change theirs. Eat and let eat! » 1/27/15 10:15am Tuesday 10:15am

That's so funny, I was also not super into their food. I thought maybe it was because we were on the back patio and they serve a limited menu out there, but obviously not! I got a beer flight, and liked a few, but found most of it pretty forgettable. Though my brother has been back since and said some of their… » 1/26/15 10:57pm Monday 10:57pm
